Help Ester Community Association meet its monthly mortgage on the Ester Community Park.
Ester Park has a monthly mortgage of $439.34 which adds up to $5272.08 per year. If 44 people would each pay $10 per month or $120 per year the mortgage would be covered!
Mortgage Meeters are a special group of friends whose support we can count upon. With most of the mortgage covered we may turn our attention to fundraising for park maintenance and improvement. We are very proud of our stage and its improved electrical system, our new ice surfacing machine, and other improvements to our field, playground, and sanitation. This park truly belongs to the people of Ester and is the result of their countless hours of volunteer labor.
If you wish to be a 2019 Park Mortgage Meeter please mail Mortgage Meeter app 2019 with your donation to ECA MORTGAGE MEETER, BOX 14, ESTER AK 99725.
Donations are fully tax deductible and a receipt will be mailed to you.
Thank you for your support.

What a great cleanup day at Ester Community Park! Thank you so much to all of the members of our community that came out today to help! Over 40 volunteers showed up, and we were able to not only complete every task I had on my list, but also several extras too! I couldn’t be happier! Our park is loved and it shows. I always say “it takes a village”, and today… everyone stepped up and did their part! Thanks again, with much appreciation…. the park czar.

The Spring Ester Community Association membership meeting will cover short committee updates, fundraising reports and most importantly will be an opportunity to lay out summer projects and event schedules, identify volunteers and prepare for Fourth of July, Ester Fest, Community Park clean-up and special projects. There will be snacks provided and it should be a great gathering. We hope to see you there!
